Blind item: Personal assistant tells all to ‘The Cut’ about unnamed celeb single mom

photocaseywbg94gb55060051
The Cut published a lengthy essay-like blind item as a tale told by a personal assistant to a single mother/celebrity/actress. You can read the full piece here – it’s very, very interesting, and offers a glimpse into how crazy some (most?) celebrities are. This PA was a live-in assistant who basically did everything for her employer, even breaking up with the celebrity’s boyfriend, smuggling drugs to festivals and read her books for her.

Breaking up the actress’s boyfriend:
I broke up with a very prominent actor boyfriend of hers. She said, “Oh, we’re done making a movie together; it’s not really going to work; I’m sort of seeing somebody else. Could you just tell him to back off and leave me alone?” And she said this over the phone, over Christmas. She told me, “Accept the date on my behalf. Take the date. Go instead of me.” So, that’s what I did. You would think sending a text is the worst — no. Sending your assistant to break up with him is the worst. He had no idea it was coming, either, which was sad. Because when I was talking to him on the phone before, he was like, “Great! She said yes! Tell her I’ll see her here; I’ll order us her favorite wine,” and I was just like, “Okay!” Ugh. I felt horrible for him. I was like, “You do not deserve this.” That breakup was two weeks into the job. That was my initiation — Oh my God, this is what I’m doing?

Morning schedule:
By 7 a.m., she’d want to know everything that had happened in the news, what she should be aware of around the world. I was very well informed at that point. If she was up for a job, I’d go through the script with her. She was shooting a lot, and on those days, I would have to be her alarm, and wake her up at 4 a.m. And then later in the day I would drive her child and the babysitter to the set to visit her, and I would have to be around, in case the kid threw a fit, to take them back.

The celebrity would pick up her assistant at the bar?
To escape, I would have to physically leave her house at certain times. I took a lot of weekend trips. Sometimes the nanny would let me stay over at her apartment — I would drive around the corner and hide my car and hang out at the nanny’s apartment on weekends, just to sleep. And I would leave the house and just go drink a lot. I would go down the street from her place and walk to a couple of the bars. The bar owners knew me, and they understood, because she would pick me up sometimes — they would be like, “Trust me, I know what you have to go home to. These next few rounds are on us.” I would drink, and then go back and feed her, and then go to sleep in the office.

The celebrity thinks her palm reader is a therapist:
Once I got called in as an emergency because she said, “I need to see my therapist.” So I had to leave my family and drive over and pick her up, because she was like, “After therapy, I can’t drive.” That’s fine, I get it: So she’s in with the therapist, and I’m sitting there in the car, reading, and I remember seeing the therapist’s name — but she wasn’t a therapist. Oh no. She was a palm reader. She was a palm reader that we got a discount for in the gift bag at an awards show. She was a psychic.

Drug smuggling:
I started to check all the details on the things I had to do for her. Like when I had to go to pick up her quote-unquote “herbs” — I didn’t realize until then: Oh crap, I’m a drug runner. She said “herbs” because she was being holistic, and I was naïve and thought it was something herbal to help her calm down. Once when we went to a film festival, I flew out early so I could lay out the clothes she would wear. When she got in, she was like, “Did you get my stuff?” What stuff? “Oh, I put some stuff in your bag.” Oh my God, I went on a f–king plane carrying drugs for you? I could have gotten arrested! You could have at least told me so I knew what I was doing, and put it in the bag that’s not checked! What are you doing to me? At least ask and say, “Hey, do you mind carrying for me?” Not that I would have said no, but at least I could have put it in a concealed location.

The actress has STDs:
I would go pick up her medicine for her, all her pills, and after that I started checking every little thing to see what it was. I was like, Oh my God, I know exactly what she has now. I realized I needed to warn whoever was with her about certain STDs. I called the ex-boyfriend, and I was like, “Hey, you need to get checked out. I don’t think she’ll ever call you.” And he was like, “Oh, sh-t. Thanks.” This was seven months after the breakup.

[From NY Magazine]

While the drug smuggling stuff and the breaking up with the woman’s boyfriend stuff is excessive, some of the PA duties just seem rather average. I’ve worked as an assistant before (not in Hollywood but God, my boss was THE BEST) and that kind of job attracts anal retentive, highly organized people who know what they’re signing up for. A lot of this PA’s complaints just seem… I don’t know, like, she’s just bitching about exactly what her job entails.

So, who is the actress? Michael K theorized that it sounds like Kate Hudson, and that’s a pretty good guess, IMO. I’m also getting some January Jones vibes, for real. And not just because my computer iced over when I was writing this.

    I think it’s Charlize. Kate doesn’t care about seeming like she is up on news & politics. She isn’t a regular at Cannes. She has also been with more musicians than actors in the last few years.

    Also I’ve heard friend of a friend type of gossip that makes her sound that she’s awful in real life.

    • Anne says:

      Charlize seems pretty right to me.

      • TG says:

        I was thinking Charlize too, also because she has never really seemed the mothering type and I wouldn’t put it past her to get a black child just for publicity. And no I don’t think every body who adopts foreign or minority babies is just doing it for attention and publicity but I do think some of them are. Someone like Madonna comes to mind as well.

      • nofkksgiven says:

        yes and charlize has been seen smoking the good herb in public – though I’m sure most celebs do

      • Yeah, I’ve been hearing stories about how Charlize is a biatch in real life–and plus it really turned me off how she practically threw herself at Fassy.

      • FLORC says:

        Completely agree. Charlize seems awful and those rumors won’t go away.

        OT a bit, but there was a blind item about a celeb with terrible breath. Popular thought was it was B.Coop. I got to meet him recently and his breath was fine. Wasn’t that a revealed BI?

      • Arock says:

        Has anyone considered Michelle Williams? Single mom, dated jason whatshisname for a while, film festivals etc. or Halle berry? I think the article photo maybe misleading our assumptions.

      • Rhiley says:

        I hope it isn’t Sandy Bullock. I love Sandy Bullock. I think Charlize is a good guess. I kind of can’t believe she is with Sean Penn given the racists bratty rant his son displayed on film. Children don’t just come up with that crap; they learn from somewhere. If I had a black child, I wouldn’t feel safe having around Sean Penn’s son. Gross!

      • Liv says:

        It’s not Sandra Bullock! Please! Sandra is just really kind and nice, the woman in the blind not so much.

        Did Charlize broke up with someone before Penn? OMG, if it’s her, she has STDs!

        However it is, I could never be a personal assistant. I would freak out, especially when they are that crazy and rude and egoistical like this woman! Unbelievable that they treat people like this!

      • FLORC says:

        Hollywood sleeps with Hollywood. Most of them have something. Lots with herp. I think she’s been seen with a cold sore.

      • bluhare says:

        I’ve had cold sores since I was a child and I sure didn’t get them by sleeping around.

      • Tanguerita says:

        No way it’s Charlize. She adopted her child after having broken up with Stuart Townsend and had been pretty much on her own till Penn came along. And January Jones doesn’t qualify as a movie actress. My bet is on Kate.

      • Secret Squirrel says:

        @FLORC – You are right that cold sores are a form of Herpes, but it is a completely different strain to genital herpes. It is absolutely no indication of genital herpes infection if someone has cold sores. I for one have had cold sores since birth and most definitely did not get them from sleeping around (or my mother sleeping around etc).

      • mytbean says:

        bluehare – yeah, most people don’t know that it’s estimated that 85% of the world has herpes. People with it often test negative. A lot of carriers never experience a symptom in their lives. The ironic thing – negative testing, symptom free carriers are the ones spreading it but also the ones perpetuating the stigma that it’s a slut’s disease.

    • eliza says:

      So many folks adore Theron and ignore the stories that have floated around HWood for years about her diva behavior vs her public persona. She is not a nice woman by several accounts.

      • YuYa says:

        I think she is probably a lot like her character in “Young Adult”…she played it so well something had to be true!

      • Candy Love says:

        ^ This

        Visual effects supervisor Ed Taylor was ask about working with Steven Spielberg, Angelina Jolie, Will Smith and Charlize Theron.

        He went into deal about working with Spielberg saying he was “much down to business, knew exactly what he wanted. Said that Smith was “Great and funny guy” and Angelina Jolie was down-to-earth, polite and funny.

        Now when it came to Charlize Theron the only thing he had to say that “it was nice to meet her” which says a lot without saying much at all.

    • evie says:

      Yep, Charlize is who immediately came to my mind as well!

    • FingerBinger says:

      How can this be Charlize? Her son is only two and this P.A. sounds like she’s been with this celeb for a few years. Also, Charlize is close to her mother. I think her mother would take care of her kid before a P.A. would. Also, I don’t think Charlize would have a P.A. break up with her boyfriend for her.

    • Cameron says:

      I don’t why people are a big fan of Charlize . The same woman who admitted that she left South Africa due to the abolishment of apartheid.. And there would be no work for a white model due to majority rule. I’m surprised they allowed her to adopt a black baby.. When it was obvious she couldn’t live in a majority Black Country .
      I’m sorry that’s my feelings for her besides she hangs out with Chelsea handler.

      • Pumpkin Pie says:

        What? She said she left ZA because of the abolishment of apartheid?????

      • Addison says:

        I remember when Nelson Mandela died we saw much footage of his life and the people he associated with. One of them is Theron, he praised her. They hugged and she cried, it was a very sweet moment. I doubt that if she were opposed to apartheid that Nelson would have praised her. I am sure I read that she was against apartheid. Don’t know where you are getting your information.

        In regards to the blind, if it is true, I am very surprised. I thought she was nice. I guess I don’t pay enough attention to her.

      • Tulip Garden says:

        @Cameron,
        That is a very serious statement to make about Charlize’s views of apartheid. May I ask where you read it? It would definitely change my view of her and, tbh, I find it difficult to believe. Whenever I have seen Charlize speak of her upbringing she has always spoken eloquently about how lovely the country and it’s people are (often mentioning her nanny with whom she was particularly close). I would be really shocked to find any such statements attributed to Charlize by a legitimate news outlet because, basically, I would be shocked to find that she felt that way. To assert that she shouldn’t have been allowed to adopt her child because of statements that she supposedly made seems a great insult and stretch. Of course, if you are right then I would agree wholeheartedly with you. So any more verifiable info about this statement she made?
        Of course, disliking her on account of perceiving her to be a biyotch or because she hangs with Handler is fine. I don’t care that she hangs with Handler and I like her edgy bitchiness. I also think she is extremely talented and very beautiful. My real disappointment about her is that she is involved with Penn. I keep hoping that it’s a short-lived, and deeply regretted mistake.

      • FingerBinger says:

        @Cameron Charlize left South Africa shortly after her mother killed her father in self defense. She left to become a model with her mother’s blessing. It had absolutely nothing to do with apartheid. You must have her confused with someone else or you’re just flat out lying.

      • Seasong says:

        Surely you’ve all heard about the extreme violence meted out to white landholders? The ANC ruling party actively encourages ‘racist’ behaviour toward whites & I don’t mean name calling. The UN has been petitioned to declare their stance genocidal.

      • Morgana says:

        Wow…I had Nooooo idea that’s why she left S.A…..I thought it was because of the bad memories about her father..but then again I really don’t know that much about her…BOY…I’m I getting an education on her after reading some of these posts😂lol.

    • Dommy Dearest says:

      January Jones. I’m getting that vibe. Tots Jones.

    • stacat1 says:

      before I finished reading – Charlize was the first name to pop into my head…
      But I could def see january jones behaving this way too. Blind Gossip has the same story and says its a Hollywood household name- so I lean to Charlize..if you haven’t seen mad men–I don’t think most households are as familiary with JJ.

    • Loveisthecoal says:

      For some reason, as soon as I started reading it I thought “oh, this is Charlize.”

    • Becky1 says:

      I don’t think it’s Charlize. Who would the well known actor boyfriend be? She’d have to be with the actor at a time when she already had a child and that doesn’t fit for Charlize. It also mentions that the actress did a movie with this actor. Charlize doesn’t fit.

      • Tulip Garden says:

        I agree that Charlize doesn’t fit at all. Also she used to have a huge fandom here on CB despite, and likely because of, her perceived bitchiness. I still like her despite and because of it! Lastly, I believe her acquaintance, and perhaps friendship, with Handler is what has lessened her fandom on CB. For whatever reason it seems anyone friendly to Handler is equated to a Jolie hater and thus follows that persons decrease in popularity here. It seems very “high school” so I hope I am wrong. At any rate, Charlize is truly talented, lovely, successful and, perhaps, bitchy so she would probably fit in well here!!!
        I will add that Penn really needs to go. I hope she drops him or even that he drops her soon.

  2. MsGoblin says:

    “Iced over when I was writing this”. Bwahahahaha! Thanks.

  3. bowers says:

    How desperate could a person be to have to go through a “job” like this?

  4. blue marie says:

    I think I’d buy it being January Jones over Kate Hudson. Kate seems like the type of girl that could get her own “herbs”

  5. mimif says:

    I didn’t read the full piece, and I don’t know the time frame, but I don’t think it’s Kate Hudson because if it were, she would have mentioned what an unrepentant slob she is. As in poor hygiene, pathological slob. (Sorry, I’m not trying to be mean, just reporting what I, um, know.)

  6. Anne says:

    Please, don’t let it be January Jones. Just when I was starting to like her.

  7. MollyB says:

    Kate Hudson makes sense to me. Do you think January Jones has the kind of money to hire a personal assistant? I’m not sure. Mad Men is really her only big role and she doesn’t come from money the way Kate does. How much is she pulling in from that?

  8. GiGi says:

    I’m not even sure why they did the story – it hardly seems bad and mostly seems like she’s b!tching about what her actual job required. Aside from the drug bit – which – who knows? It’s not like she says she KNEW they were drugs. This is high on the meh scale when it comes to assistant stories.

    • Omega says:

      I agree with you.

      I’m a little concerned at that little tit-bit at the end where the assistant takes it upon herself to disclose another persons medical conditions. If the actor boyfriend and her boss had been apart for 7 months, it may be that the boss was infected after they dated and therefore didnt need to inform him. Hell, it could even be that the actor boyfriend infected her. Either way, disclosing another persons medical conditions without their express approval is way worse than the stuff she claims was done to her.

      • Kaylen says:

        STD testing is suggested every 6 months. The PA likely would have known if the infection had happened before or after dating this particular person, since the PA handled everything.

        It’s your RESPONSIBILITY as decent human being to contact all the partners you’ve had between tests if something shows up in the new results. Sure, you could be contacting the very person who gave it to you, but maybe they don’t know they’re even inflected.

        Disclosing another persons medical conditions without their express approval is kind of shady, sure, but I bet the ex-boyfriend is glad she did and so is every person he’s been with after.

      • TG says:

        I would say disclosing someone’s medical condition is slightly worse than planting drugs on someone. Maybe they are equal but planting drugs on someone going thru an airport ranks pretty high up there in the jerk department. They both are criminal actions though.

      • Moore says:

        If she figured out they were drugs what were they. They must not have looked like common drugs for the assistant to be fooled. Maybe they were just herbs.

    • Bridget says:

      The excerpt skipped a few details that say why the PA was so miserable – namely that she had to live with the celebrity and be at their beck and call for 24/7. From the 4am wakeup call all through the celebrity’s random whims. Reading between the lines, it’s gotta be overwhelming to have to spend every day caring for am adult the way you would a toddler.

      ETA: Though I should also say that none of this is unusual for a Hollywood PA. It would suck as a regular person job, for sure!

      • TG says:

        Yes, and you can put a toddler in time-out for bad behavior you can’t do that to a man-child or a woman-child. I guess money and power do strange things to people, but I really think you have to already have that ugliness in you to begin with though. Not all persons in power positions behave that way.

      • Bridget says:

        We’re not talking about everyone in power, though – we’re talking about a lot of Hollywood. It’s a group of people that share the same profession, that typically draws insecure, ‘artistic’ people. That’s not to say that every single actor in Hollywood treats their assistant like crap, but this is definitely not unusual.

  9. aims says:

    I think Kate Hudson is a good guess. But who would be the boyfriend?

  10. eliza says:

    I thought Jones too until I thought about the actress “filming a lot”. I don’t think Jones is that busy aside from Mad Men.

    I am horrible at blinds.

    P.S- It’s ypur job, other thsn drug running. I dislike blabber mouthed, disgruntled assistants who act like they are they same special snowflakes as the actors they work for. Everyone knows P.A’s are worked to death. I am sure this trick got plenty of perks. She just failed to mention those in her pointless rant.

  11. GeeMoney says:

    I feel sorry for a lot of Hollywood PA’s – they put up with a lot.

    At the same time, I can’t understand why anyone would work for someone like this. I’d rather have no job than deal with someone’s over the top shenanigans.

  12. SW says:

    Has JJ had a real boyfriend in years? Kate Is a good guess. I hate that we will never know! Lol

  13. Kimmy says:

    I just stifled an LOL at your January Jones comment.

  14. Happyhat says:

    Yeah, most of that is standard assistant job, right? With a little on the side of a more intense-sounding job.

    Acting as a news-digester is a pretty standard thing – people don’t have time to read the newspapers, and this assistant is simply acting as a human news-feed.

    Also, in the article, the first bit about hoping an option follows through? Yeah, that’s pretty standard for EVERYONE in the industry.

    But the drugs and the breaking up…wow…

  15. Diana says:

    It’s totally Kate Hudson

  16. Nicolette says:

    Just read the full piece. IDK, I’m thinking maybe Reese? What would be brow raising is if it were someone that’s not publicly perceived to be your typical Hollywood diva. Sandra Bullock? With so many actresses being or having been single mom’s at some point it could be anybody.

  17. PunkyMomma says:

    I’m going with Kate Hudson. The attitude of the celebrity suggests that money has never been an issue. People born into wealth are oblivious to the needs/issues of the lower classes.

  18. AlmondJoy says:

    I love blind items! I almost never get them correct, but it’s so much fun reading the guesses.

    As for the PA job, this further confirmed that I could NEVER be an assistant to a celeb. I’m just not cut out for that type of work. I would be fired for saying “ummm you do it yourself” too often.

  19. Samtha says:

    The only things out of the ordinary here are breaking up with the boyfriend and smuggling the drugs. Everything else sounds like ordinary assistant duties. If the celeb was really, truly bitchy and a pain to deal with, I wish the PA had given those details instead of acting as if it’s terrible to wake up early and watch the news.

    • Happyhat says:

      Yeah, my thoughts too!

      Like, tell us if the celeb was an awful bitch to you, like really really vile. Yelling at you, bullying you. Not that she made you do (mostly) standard celeb-nannying work and then learnt to trust you over a length of time.

      The article itself is pretty limp, I need more gossip then that!

    • Nicolette says:

      Blind Items are great! They’re a lot of fun to try and figure out. Some people dismiss them as being utter nonsense, but I’ve always thought they really are the juicy tidbits that celebs don’t want known about them. After all they have to maintain their “we’re better and more perfect than ordinary people” attitude. Blind Gossip has some great ones, and they will go back to older items when they are eventually revealed.

  20. Hello Kitty says:

    Compared to other blinds, this PA sounds like she got off easy. Lainey had a blind from a while back where the celebrity got the assistant to walk through airport security with a baggie of coke. The most popular guess was Gael Garcia Bernal.

  21. huh says:

    If someone put drugs in my bag without telling me, they’ll be waking up in an NICU. Seriously, I’ll hurt you.

  22. Zbornak Syndrome says:

    Hollywood is weird, very weird.

  23. hunaww says:

    I cringed when I read STD(s).Ewwwwwwwwwww.

    • Evi says:

      Hollywood is like a hideous jungle of STD’s

      • Karen says:

        It’s not just Hollywood. The statistics are mind blowing. One I read was that the ratio of new STDS to bachelor degrees in ONE year is 13 to 1!(http://www.naturalnews.com/039788_std_cdc_venereal_disease.html). Even more scary is that most people don’t even know they have one and are potentially passing it on. At least this person is taking medicine to reduce her chances of infecting someone else!

      • Nighty says:

        Those data are really scary… don’t people ever use condoms?

      • LadySlippers says:

        Omaha and Atlanta trade spots annually for the most teens with STIs (the most up today’s term for STDs). I mean, that’s a sure seller for a city — Top Spot for teenage STIs!!! Come move here!

        So I have no doubt that Hollywood and professional athletes all have more than the average number of STIs than the normal population. Heck, the military requires members to get checked frequently!

      • Amanduh says:

        Condoms don’t always protect…a lot are passed just by skin-to-skin. I hope everyone is aware of that…

      • Isadora says:

        Yes, Amanduh, that’s for example why something potentially dangerous like HPV has such a high prevalence amon sexually active women – even though they might use condoms.

      • Amanduh says:

        Right?! And herpes too. I’m always saddened/amazed that people don’t know about these things or say “wear condoms!” as though they’re 100% foolproof. I only found out after I was diagnosed with the herp (judge away- I was with boyfriends only, got tested every 6 months, yada yada…) that the only way you know if you have them IS WHEN YOU HAVE AN OUTBREAK!!! Isn’t that insane?! All those years of getting tested, I thought the one scary STI was being looked after. Yes, you can have blood tests, but there are a lot of problems there too. One in five people are infected (a carrier) and aren’t aware as the virus can remain dormant for years.
        I’m a normal woman, I have a husband, a beautiful baby and am a hard-working professional. If I can get an STI, anyone can. So before you say “eww STIs!” like an immature teenager, you have no idea who has what- you can even have something and not know. Hardest thing I’ve ever been through in my life and I don’t wish it upon anyone.

      • LadySlippers says:

        My neighbour (also a professional woman) got herpes from her then husband. He was sleeping around and ‘brought’ home several STIs to her. Sweet guy, eh?

        So I won’t shame you regardless of how you aquired your STI. We all make mistakes or come by it accidentally. Shame rarely helps anyone.

      • Amanduh says:

        You are such a sweetheart…xo

      • Karen says:

        I have herpes too (my ex cheated on me) and I just met a guy I really like. I’m dreading the whole “I have herpes” conversation. It doesn’t help that my some of my friends are super judge-y about herpes and how gross people with herpes are. It always makes me feel terrible.

      • GByeGirl says:

        @Karen: If you have more than 6 friends, then it’s likely that at least one of those judgey b!tches has it as well.

      • Amanduh says:

        @ Karen: Aww sweets, I feel for you!! That’s the hardest convo to have. If t makes you feel better, I had to tell 3 guys (one being my now husband) and not one of them rejected me. I just had all the facts, cried a little and let them decide what they wanted to do; put the ball in their court. I had (have) no idea how to navigate this. My doctor gave me really good advice: if he’s worth it (and you), you’ll make it work. And with all the antiviral meds, it might not even be an issue. I’m so sorry for all you’re going through; it tough and embarrassing, but it does help to talk to someone who’s been there. I know how you feel- gross and it’s like a kick in te stomach when someone makes a herp joke (and have you noticed the frequency??!). You’re not gross! You’re not the first person nor the last to have these…
        Gbyegirl: Love love love your comment!! It’s so true!!! I opened up to some girlfriends an found out one had them too.

      • Karen says:

        @gbyegirl very true! I have a friend who talks about it a little too vehemently. I’ve always suspected that she has it and is trying to cover it up.

        And thanks so much to you and Amanduh for the support! Yall are the reason I love this website so much.

  24. paola says:

    I don’t think it could be Kate Hudson, she seems like the kind of person who doesn’t give a shit about anything so I don’t think she would want to know about world news or making good impression on people. STDs? I don’t think she is the one.

    January Jones? Don’t think either..she has not been working a lot lately apart from Med Men and I don’t think she has that kind of income.

    To me it sounds like a big and famous super star, someone like Sandra Bullock but i don’t get those vibes from her. Maybe Kate Moss? I can believe she has STDs. or Denise Richards. I bet Charlie Sheen has al the STDs in the alphabet. From A to Z. So she might be eligible for this throne.

    Michelle Williams? She seems like someone who actually reads and maybe she didn’t want to break up with Jason Segel? he seems like the kind of guy who cries after lovemaking let alone after being dumped.

    I think it’s about Charlize more than anything. She seems a bitch and she gives me that kind of vibe. She smokes dope a lot and i can see her having an STd and sharing it with Sean Penn.

    Now i have lost my appetite.

      Denise by all accounts is a hands on mother and doubtful she is a pot smoker given she was investigated by DCFS in order to care for Sheen’s two sons by Brooke Mueller. Richards also does not seem like a woman who cares if she is up to date on current news events to impress the public.

    • LadySlippers says:

      Or Sean giving it to her. He’s icky.

    • Diana says:

      I like the Michelle Williams guess. I don’t think it’s Kate Hudson. She doesn’t seem like she cares about being well read/informed, but who knows?

    • Isadora says:

      Michelle Williams? Wouldn’t have thought of her, but yes… it could be possible…

    • Tulip Garden says:

      It is so interesting how all of us have access to the same press info and interviews and yet come away with completely different perceptions. I have always perceived Hudson to be a spoiled woman-child that is consumed by her own special snowflake status. Between her rapid cycling of retionships and her in-your-face insistence on her hippe/boho lifestyle, I’ve always thought that she is simply enamored with herself and how “cool” she is.
      BTW, I throw no shade on actual hippies or women that enjoy multiple relationships. To me, Hudson kind of epitomizes a certain selfish, bitchy/cool, spoiled rotten person that does get a lot of shade from me.
      Anyway, that has been my perception. I still enjoy watching her and think she does the whole media game very well as far as likeability. Lastly, she is really pretty. But, yeah, I still don’t care for her much.

      • Nina W says:

        It’s funny how much I agree with you. I know it reflects my own bias. I grew up surrounded by the spoiled children of the wealthy and famous and I have encountered far too many “special snowflakes” in my life. I hope it’s not Kate and that she is a sweet hippie but I suspect she might not be.

    The drug and break up stuff is over the line. But everything else sounds pretty common. I’ve always gotten the impression that is not a job for the thin-skinned. With a great boss I think it could be a fantastic job, especially for someone looking to make connections in the business, but I personally couldn’t deal with the more spoiled and demanding people.

  26. Evi says:

    Whoever this celebrity is, they’re not as bad as Charlie Sheen.

  27. Talie says:

    I think it’s very Kate. January is on basic cable and has never been a film leading lady — no way in hell is she living this kind of life with PA.

  28. InvaderTak says:

    The part about the STD’s is just low. No one deserves to have that gossiped about. This PA sounds like she just wants to be famous for something. I can’t bring myself to be on her side about this.

    • eliza says:

      Agreed.

      This idiot acts as if she had it so bad. Like many have mentioned, other than the breakup and drugs it is all basic stuff and in HWood even the drugs and breakups are basic tasks.

      I also mentioned up thread, this tattletale probably soaked up the perks of the job like mad but failed to mention that while ranting.

      Not defending STD’s but it is low to expose somethibg like that, as it says more about the narc telling this story than it does about the woman she worked for.

      I wish she would be exposed for her smarmy, blabber mouthed ways. THAT is an employee you never trust.

      The irony of her mentioning at the end how this actress trusted her, all the while she is blabbing about how she apparently is not trustworthy AT ALL.

    • Emily C. says:

      ITA.

      It is not a moral failing to contract an STI. The overall prevalence of herpes is 26% at least. Condoms are not perfect; everyone does not use them every time, or correctly, and to expect perfection from people in this area is ridiculous; most people do not use them with their spouses.

      All it takes to get an STI is to have sex once. Or to be raped once. They are not a mark of shame.

    • mayamae says:

      This sounds too much like The Nanny Diaries. The employer is an incompetent and negligent parent, and the PA is a saint.

  29. Bridget says:

    Kaiser:
    I sincerely doubt that your personal assistant job entailed living in your boss’s house amd being on call 24/7. I wouldn’t call it petty complaining to not want to be your boss’s 4am alarm clock. There’s a reason why celebrity PA is typically a job with a short lifespan.

  30. kibbles says:

    It could be any single mother in Hollywood. My initial reaction would be to pick someone who fits the description well like Charlize Theron or Kate Hudson. However, I kinda want to go with someone whose fans would least expect to have a diva type attitude, so I’m gonna go with Sandra Bullock. I’ve always felt that Sandra has a darker side that she hides very well with the help of an excellent public relations specialist. She did marry Jesse James after all and seemed happy with him until his affairs and nazi pics became public. I wouldn’t be surprised if there is an entirely different side to her that would shock a lot of people.

  31. Aria says:

    I think Lainey’s riddle is about Edward Norton.

  32. Hannah says:

    I think the PA comes off worse. She has gone in to the business. Surely this is the kind of vapid rubbish she should expect. Disclosing that someone has a medical condition is absolutely atrocious.

    I wouldn’t think this is Kate in a million years. Honestly, I can’t think who this could be. Probably someone we don’t really know/care about.

  33. Dita says:

    It sounds like Janaury Jones to me. But can I can also see this being Kate Hudson as well so I’m torn.

  34. Lemon says:

    I thought January Jones about 3 seconds into reading this. I don’t see it being Kate Hudson or Charlize. I can’t see Kate caring about what’s going on in the world at 7am every day, and I can’t see Charlize having someone break up with a guy randomly like that. She was with that Stuart guy for years, and seems to have a handle on her business. Definitely feeling JJ on this one!

  35. Vanessa says:

    Sounds more like Kate Hudson. She was born rich and spoiled. Also, the whole attending music festivals and seeing pyschics, matches her personality.

  36. Lucky Charm says:

    Jenny McCarthy? My first thought was Sharon Stone, but I don’t think she’s ever dated an actor co-star. Jenny seems like she would be huge pain to be a PA to.

  37. brionne says:

    Disclosing an STD to a previous sexual partner doesn’t seem vile and despicable to me. The health dept contacts people who are on lists of those who do have confirmed cases. I’d certainly rather do that than get arrested on felony drug smuggling charges at an airport ruining my chances for future employment and freedom…not to mention family shame. Yeah….the STD thing is definitely a better choice.

  38. Narsa says:

    Possibly liv Tyler , she is friends with Kate Hudson ????

  39. bobbisue says:

    As I was reading this on dlisted earlier, well before seeing his guess, I immediately thought “this has got to be Charlize Theron.” People forget she’s as icy as JJ and she’s had a fucked up past and notoriously smokes pot. Also, unceremoniously dumped Stuart Townsend after 9 years. Heart isn’t really her thing.

  40. kimber says:

    It’s sandra bullock.
    She owns her own production company and is a single mom with a kid. She likes weed and pretending to read I guess. But it’s totally her!!

  41. RobN says:

    Don’t think it’s Kate Hudson. Does she really strike anybody as the type to want a news update at 7:00 every morning?

  42. Debutante says:

    Kate Hudson. Kate Hudson. Definitely first person I thought of. And if Anyone stuffed drugs into my luggage, boss or no boss, I would give them a major beating !

  43. Elle says:

    If the Celeb is Charlize Theron, could the guy she was dating that the PA dumped for her possibly be Alexander Skarsgard.

  44. astrid says:

    Kate hudson. She has a production company with her family and around the time she dated Owen wilson (which I guess is the break up actor) she was working much more than now. and somehow she seems like the kind of person who would demand getting all the news without actually caring and getting all the new books without actuallly reading them, no?

    • TG says:

      You know you ifht be right despite my assumptions that it or was Charlize because Owen Wilson was fragile around that time. But was her breakup right after her filing of You Me and Dupree? I thought the blind said it was right after filming wrapped. I don’t see Skarsgard as some weak guy begging and grateful for a date with his girlfriend but I can totally see Owen. I still can’t imagine Kaye wanting to know the news though. But anyone dumb enough to go to a palm reader is likely dumb enough to listen to be following advice that reading the appear makes you smart, which I agree you should keep abreast of current events but I bet Kate can’t process anything she reads. I just don’t see her concerning herself with what is going on in Crimea or anywhere else for that matter.

      • Nina W says:

        Wanting to know “what she should know about” in the news or however they said it is not the same as being well informed on current events. My impression was not that the PA gives a hard hitting news report but the PA clues the celeb in to any “big” news they should know about in case of an interview or whatever. Like, you should know there was a big earthquake in Chile and Gwyneth and Chris broke up, that kind of stuff.

  45. chloe says:

    i was a PA once and i don’t want to be one ever again
    it was not a very good experience for me

  46. Hap says:

    Whatever else was said, the fact that the employer hid drugs in the employee’s luggage is a seriously criminal offense. That someone would be capable of doing that says to me that the employer celebrity has to be a psychopath, truly; someone who absolutely has zero concern for the welfare of anybody else. If the assistant had been caught, she may have ended up in prison and, even if not, she’d have a permanent criminal record, which would ruin her life. That is some heavy stuff to just so casually do to another human being.
